CHARLAMANGE COIN - Charlemagne 742-814 becomes King of the Franks (768). The Franks were converted to Christianity by Irish monks. Charlemange surrounded himself with Celtic scolars at his court in Aachen. On the death of his father Pippin, Charlemagne (Latin: Carolus Magnus or Karolus Magnus, meaning Charles the Great) became King of the Franks. Charlemagne expanded the Frankish kingdoms into a Frankish Empire that incorporated much of Western and Central Europe.
